The Saskatchewan College of Paramedics has been carefully monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic with the Saskatchewan Health Authority, Ministry of Health and the Public Health Agency of Canada.
SCoP supports all its members in following the guidelines for treatment modifications as set out by the SHA in managing their patients at this time. We recognize that Emergency Medical Responders (EMRs) and Paramedics may have limitations placed on them during this pandemic; these processes are created from best practices in managing a pandemic and reducing the spread of the illness. While no EMR or Paramedic can work beyond their scope of practice, limitations or modifications can be implemented by an employer. Members should follow the recommendations developed by the SHA.
As EMRs and Paramedics have important roles both within and outside the SHA, it is important that all levels of paramedics have access to and use the same supporting documentation to ensure consistency of information.
All Emergency Medical Responders and Paramedics should refer to the Government of Saskatchewan’s website, Saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus. It is the central source of information for both the public and health care workers, and is updated frequently as the situation evolves.
